WAIKIKI BEACH — Waikiki’s newest luxury resort –The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach – is set to debut its brand new Diamond Head Tower on Oct. 15, marking the completion of Oahu’s first Ritz-Carlton Residences.
The new 245-residence tower follows the Summer 2016 opening of the Ewa Tower. Along with Ewa’s 307 rooms, the two 38-storey towers bring a total of 552 rooms to Waikiki Beach’s shores. With a combined 246 suites in both towers, the resort boasts the largest number of luxury hotel suites on the island.
“We are excited to continue redefining the standard for luxury hospitality in Waikiki with the debut of our completed resort featuring both towers,” said Douglas Chang, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach. “We look forward to welcoming discerning travellers from around the globe to experience the finest residential-influenced accommodation on Oahu.”
Both towers include stylish studio, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom residential accommodations and penthouses. All rooms and suites face the ocean and include kitchens with premium appliances along with in-residence washers and dryers.
The new Diamond Heat Tower comes with many upscale amenities, including an expanded spa with four treatment rooms and relaxation lounge, and a 2,900 square-foot infinity pool with private cabanas equipped with SMART televisions, refrigerators and day beds. Along with Ewa Tower’s infinity pool, the resort is considered to boast the highest pools in the area, located on the 7th and 8th floors.
Diamond Head will also boast 10 meeting and event spaces, including a boardroom, movie theatre, The Horizon Terrace and Lanai, and the 22,000 square-foot Lau’ula Park, which can host a reception for up to 800 guests. The resort’s ground-level promenade also features two stages for community performances and nearly two acres of lush greenery.
In early 2019, the resort will also debut a new dining venue at the Diamond Head Tower pool deck, along with a gourmet market located on the ground level.
